New version of Duolingo doesn't notice practicing words

Hi. There are quite a few discussions about problems caused by the new version of the website but there's one issue that I thing is missing and which is in my opinion the worst. The worst issue I've been experiencing since May the 2nd (when new Duolingo version has been applied to my profile) is that it stopped to notice the fact that i practiced my skills and words. For months I've been trying to keep as much words as possible strong practicing between 2 and 8 skills a day (although they were gold, but with the highest share of weak words). Since the new version was applied, practicing became USELESS. Wordlist shows that words that I have just practised, were last practised even "5 months ago"! And there's more. I've counted at least 19 new words that should have been added to my wordlist, but they haven't! New version of the website has ruined my Duolingo experience and made practising useless. That's really discouraging and disappointing. Therefore I hope this bug is fixed soon. Piotr

I have also posted about this, sent a bug report and it is one of the main reasons I am disengaging from DL

The words issue has been there since before the update. I don't focus on it. I just try to keep my tree gold. I don't really care about word lists anymore... That's why there's a dictionary. My goal is to try not to use a dictionary as much as I can and learn through repetition. The only time I practiced words individually was probably for spelling tests and anatomy tests. For practical reasons (for speaking), I don't need it. I focus more on the grammar than anything else, words are just there to fill the blanks.

That's just me though! I suppose your goals are different.

Perhaps, but not to that extent. I've noticed a dramatic change after applying the new version. And for me it is important since I've finished my tree and managed to keep all skills gold. I still want to pracice (and also: keep my streak), but my skills un-gold rarely. So I've decided to practice skills with the highest number of weak words, to strengthen them. Now it's impossible.

Where can I see this wordlist? I only know the (golden) skills. But I would like to see my wordlist as well :-)

On top of the page, between "Home" and "Discussion".

Have you reported it as a bug? I have. I am winding down on these discussions, so no need to reply to me!

Me too! I just answered 'il governatore' correctly in 3 successive rounds. Not only will 'Government' not strengthen, Words show that I haven't practiced that word in 2 months!
